Joan Rivers

More good news for Joan Rivers fans: the feisty 81-year-old comedian was moved out of intensive care and into a private room at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC.

"My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable. Thank you for your continued support," said Melissa Rivers said in a statement.

In an earlier statement released by her mother's longtime publicist on Tuesday, Melissa said her mother was "Still on life support." She most likely meant Rivers was on a ventilator to assist her breathing. Not all patients who are on ventilators are considered to be on life support.

Rivers suffered respiratory and cardiac arrest during a routine outpatient endoscopy procedure in NYC. She was placed in a medically induced coma at Mount Sinai Hospital to allow her brain to rest and to speed her recovery.

Over the weekend doctors weaned Rivers off the medications that put her into a coma. The purpose of weaning Rivers off the meds is to see if she responds to doctors voices or to tactile (touching) stimuli.

On Monday a source told E! News Rivers was “on the road to recovery.”

      Good for Joan, sounds promising.... I honestly didn't think she would make it :tea: I was wrong

    • StripperOnAMinkRug

      I hope she pulls thru.. I like that she says what other people won't.. And she will make fun of herself before anyone else gets a chance to. I feel bad for Melissa.. Their relationship reminds me of mine and my mother and I would dayum near embalm myself if something happens to her!!
      Get better Joan!!

      :think: Can you give an example of her doing this? She is talking about clothes mostly so maybe I missed it cause I def don't watch her stand up but I find very little of her commentary to actually be on point. :think:

    • Unshakable

      I am glad she is pulling through. I get such a case of the sads when people receive their celestrial discharge. Prayers for her and the fam.

The last thing he told him to do, he went back and told him it was done and not long after he went on... :brokenheart:
